Adding a License Key

One of the nice features of getting updates is being able to use a one-click update like you get with themes and plugins that you get from the wordpress.org website. Whenever there is an update, you get notification and a one-click update feature built into WordPress. Our themes have this capability as well.

However, to add this feature, you need to setup a license key that you get with your premium theme. Notice that I said premium theme? This is because child themes should not get updates because of what a child theme is generally used for (more on this in another tutorial).

  1. Log into Childthemestyles.com and go to the main menu >> Members >> Purchase history
  2. To get your license key, you have several options:
    1. Get it from the email receipt for your theme purchase
    2. Get it from the Purchase History >> View Details and Downloads
      purchase history
    3. Get it from the Purchase History >> View Licenses >> clicking on the Key icon
      view license key
    4. Get it from the Purchase History >> View Licenses >> Manage Sites
      Note: The key you see here is an example and not valid
      manage websites key
  3. How you get your license key is up to you, but when you find it, copy the license key (the long string of characters).
  4. You will need to be logged into your dashboard to add your license in one of two ways:
    1. With your theme active, go to Appearance >> Theme License
      enter-theme-license
    2. If your theme is not active, go to Appearance >> Themes >> click on your Theme Details, activate the theme, and then at the bottom, click on “Theme License
      enter theme license
  5. Make sure you save it.
